SPAC takes part in NetSciX 2022

Last week, we attended the International School and Conference on Networks Science 2022 in Porto, our first in-person conference since the beginning of the pandemic. Lília Perfeito (PostDoc at SPAC) gave a talk on the dynamics of information spread on Twitter, and Sara Mesquita (PhD student) presented her poster about the changes in online behaviour during COVID-19.

Our work presented at CCS 2021

On October 26th, we presented two of our projects at the Conference on Complex Systems 2021. One described a model of information spread that does not rely on information on the the underlying network and shows how Tweets can be a good quantitative model for studying cultural evolution. The other was on how excess confidence can explain negative attitudes towards science, including a new metric to gauging confidence. You can find more details about the presentations here.

We presented our latest research on spreading of respiratory viruses at IC2S2

Last July, we joined the 7th International Conference on Computational Social Science (IC2S2) and talked about our work on non-flu respiratory viruses. We discussed a computational approach which uses epidemiological data, weather data, and Google search trends, to gain insights into the impact of climate in nowcasting models for non-influenza respiratory viruses. You can find more details here.
